OVERVIEW

The teaching is part of the Master Degree Course in Primary Education Sciences (24 hours, 4 ECTS). Through the reading of some main works of Italian literature we will study themes, styles and communication strategies of the literary texts focused on the educational skills of the Italian literature.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The main objective of the course is a focused analysis of those aspects and topics in the Italian literary production that best suit the specificities of Primary Education. Literature will be analyzed and presented as a privileged reflection of society, as a projection of the human condition, with special reference to the world of childhood, of maternity, of the feminine, in the complex interweaving of historic reality, sealed by the added value of artistic transfiguration

Further objectives are: to educate students to the reading, the analysis and the interpretation of the Italian literary texts and to their historical and cultural heritage; to provide an adequate knowledge through which the students can design learning paths for primary school.
